Hobbs began his career at UVA almost 7 years ago in the HR service center but soon moved into compliance and immigration services. In January, the international taxation function was moved to the tax compliance area in FRO, and Hobbs began working in UVAFinance with familiar colleagues from Financial Operations and Payroll.
In his day to day work, Hobbs, a 2012 graduate of Roanoke College, analyzes payments to international students, faculty, and researchers, and examines foreign corporations and businesses to determine the correct tax withholding and reporting.
Hobbs says he enjoys being able to help students, researchers and faculty get the information they need.
"There are lots of different aspects that come together in my job - it's even kind of exciting, as much as tax compliance can be exciting," he says.
When he's not sorting out international tax issues, Hobbs can be found hiking and watching sports with his wife and their dog.
